This is a very weird story. I've also never really told anybody, so please bear with me through the weirdness. I promise I'll try to elaborate and explain to the best of my abilities, although it might be a bit difficult in some areas.
It all started about four or five years ago now, when I was still in grade school. My family and I were going to a nearby town outside of our village (there's no better word for it) one night to get some supplies and browse through a giant sale that a warehouse there was having. That's all pretty normal; but then there was like a flash of light across the sky, moving like a ripple across the water until it disappeared over the horizon. When I asked my family if they had seen it, they asked what I had seen. Naturally I assumed that they hadn't seen anything, and my suspicions were later confirmed.
I was really confused, but figured that my eyes must be playing tricks on me, so I sat back and resumed staring out the window.
When we got to the warehouse, there was a super bright flash of light, and I was temporarily blinded. I freaked out then, and I asked my family if they had seen that, but again they said no.
The next thing I know, there's a black dog standing RIGHT THERE. Extremely long story short, I realized that he was like my spirit guide sent to me, depicting who I would be if I was an animal by his form (strange I know, but it's true; since we first met, he has changed to a wolf). He doesn't really remember where he came from, he just knows that he's supposed to help me, and he does in every little aspect of life. I realized that I had some kind of empathetic link with him as well, so we could communicate our thoughts and emotions without really having to speak out loud (thank goodness, or I long would have been considered crazy...) and, arguably most importantly, I was (and still am) the only one that could see him.
I know that some people might think that this is a bit of an overactive imagination at work, but once when my wolf was... injured... I not only felt his pain through our link but I also had a scratch in the exact same place where he did. This actually has happened on several occasions.
Trust me, the story gets weirder from here. This is just the beginning, and all I'll share for now.
I was just wondering if anyone has had an experiance like this, and if so I would appreciate hearing about it. To at least know that I'm not alone...
